My ONLY question is do I get the i7 2600k or the i5 2500k, what do you guys think? I was going to make a trip to Microcenter sometime this week to pick it up, figured I would decide when I got there...I'd appreciate some insight on the subject!
I will be using this computer for video editing , downloading/watching movies and video streaming (youtube), web design and development, and definitely the occasional gaming. I don't expect to be running servers on this computer.
Thanks for the reply!
Yeah the PSU was on sale for 180, so I went for it. I read great reviews on the internet from Mushkin RAM. I was originally going to go cheap and get the Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4GB but i heard the heat sinks fall off and are useless and also are very tall. I am just not sure which CPU to get, is the 100 extra dollars really worth it? I guess if I get the i5 2500k I could get an SSD sooner. >_<;;
With the Antec 920 there are no issues with the height of the heatsinks. I agree with TImop's evaluation of the CPU. The Maximus Extreme is really overkill if you are not gaming, but as you already have it, it is a top of the line mobo. Are you going to SLI? It seems a shame if you don't SLI down the road as your rig is just chomping at the bit to do it.
